    Hayabusas will always be subpar in many ways to traditional Thai/Mexican/Japanese products IMO. Mainly due to the use of their 'engineered leather.' it's just marketing for synthetic leather and none of the Hayabusas gloves have lasted over a year at my last gym. What Hayabusa has going for them is innovative designs like the double loop enclosure, and the stacked wrist cuff on the Tokushu and Kanpeki lines (which does disperse energy in theory at least).

    The Ikusa line is a bit different in that they use a different synthetic leather and different foams. I would stay far away from the Ikusa line.

    Those fairtex gloves are the only ones I reccomend to my amateur mma athletes. They are stiff, light, and offer 0 extra protection or padding to your opponents face. My tape job is good enough to keep their hands safe so any extra padding is unnecessary

    I have pair of harbinger gloves and they are surprisingly good. Real leather, dense padding and wrist support. They are better than every MMA glove I researched except for the Thai brands.

    I was quite surprised that the stuff made by rival and everlast etc all looked very poor.

    Are Primetime MMA gloves still available anywhere? They are the original crosstraining/hybrid MMA glove for amateur MMA bouts and their padding really did make a difference when you felt them side-by-side. Very high quality. Everything since has just been a low-quality copy of a copy of a copy. PT961-5.jpg 3d4d9f0f-7bf2-4c57-9123-e41dcf4391dd.jpg
